Tiong Woon Crane & Transport based in Singapore has taken delivery of the first Grove GMK6300L-1 all-terrain crane in the region.
The 300-tonne capacity crane was put straight to work lifting replacement parts at Shell Jurong Island, Shell’s largest refinery in the Asia-Pacific region. At boom lengths ranging from 40 to 60 metres, it lifted loads mainly below 10 tonnes at radii between 20 and 30 metres.
The Grove GMK6300L-1 has an 80-metre boom and the option of a swing-away jib between 12 and 21 metres long. On the main boom only, it lifts 14 tonnes fully extended and can handle this within a 14 to a 28-metre working radius. Counterweight slabs and auxiliary hoist are interchangeable with other Grove models, the GMK5180-1, GMK5200-1, GMK5250L and GMK6300L.
Commenting on his purchase Michael Ang, Tiong Woon deputy CEO, said, “Our favourite feature on the Grove all-terrain crane is the boom length and its ability to travel with up to 21 tonnes of counterweight on board the crane, which opens it up to a wider range of jobs. We previously purchased five GMK6300L units, the predecessor of the GMK6300L-1, so there’s an existing relationship with Manitowoc and the crane has a proven track record with us.”
